Beginning on Wednesday, July 23, Columbia Public Works - Street Division will continue annual pavement preservation maintenance on several Columbia roads.

We understand that fresh asphalt, loose gravel, and lane closures are a hassle. However, as you navigate through work zones, please bear in mind that these workers are doing the very important job of repairing or prolonging the life of our streets, which we all rely on to safely get where we need to go. In addition, pavement preservation treatments require less time and less traffic disruption than the expensive reconstruction projects being avoided or delayed.
Finally, remember that road crews consist of Dads, Moms, Sons, Daughters, Brothers and Sisters, who make roadways their office. Be patient, drive slowly, watch for workers in and around roadways, and take alternate routes around construction areas when possible. We thank you for understanding!
